In Suspension

January 1977
National Review;1/7/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p16
The article profiles Jimmy Carter six weeks after his election as president of the United States. It appears that he cannot be pushed into action until he is ready to act. His first four choices for his Cabinet are diverse in background and personality although they have common traits such as being relatively young and being liberal in philosophy. These four Cabinet members, while not popular, are all competent and have experience in fields relevant to their positions.
